Enclosed is my 2003 Form 1040, together with payment. Please take note of the attached article from USA Today archives. In the article, you will note that the Pentagon paid $171.50 each for hammers and NASA paid $600.00 each for toilet seats.
Please find enclosed in this package four toilet seats (value $2,400.00) and six hammers (value $1,029.00). This is in payment forÃƒâ€š my total tax due of $3,429.00.
Out of a sense of patriotic duty, and to assist in the politicalÃƒâ€š purification of our government, I am also enclosing a 1.5 inchÃƒâ€š Phillips head screw, for which HUD duly recorded and approved aÃƒâ€š purchase value of $22.00, as my contribution to fulfill theÃƒâ€š Presidential Election Fund option on Form 1040.
It has been a pleasure to pay my taxes this year, and I look forward to paying them again next year in accordance with officiallyÃƒâ€š established government values.
